So I'm a CPA that recently moved to NYC for 90k base and ~bonus. My issue is I want to make more money. I like accounting but I also like financial research and the market in general. Can someone please inform me on how to proceed? deep down I really want 125k base plus 25k bonus when I made the move to NYC but the recruiter told me that was not possible with only 7 years of experience.
I'm I underpaid? should I jump firms in NYC and look for more money after I do my year?
Is there any part of financial services that I can jump to with my CPA and experience for more money?
